The message is titled, Listen to the Music. When we survey the music of successive generations, a story emerges. It speaks volumes about the values, hopes, dreams, needs, fears, and cultural angst of that day. We could write off the music of another generation, or we can listen and hear their hearts cry.
This second message of the series will again show us that the generational divide is not as big as we think. We are more alike than we are different.
A fun investigation that uncovers Biblical truths that teach us to look past the style, volume, and language of music and hear the heart's cry of generations.
The message was titled, Old Man Take a Look at My Life. John the Baptist preached a message calling the children back to the fathers, and the fathers back to the children. There was a gap or division in the first century, much as there is today. A gap between young and old – rich and poor – Gentile and Jew – men and women. John preached Jesus as the gap closer, and He still is.
Today we are as divided as ever, conflicts and divisions abound. When John preached in the 1st century, his mission was to prepare the way for Christ. So, we see that part of getting ready for the return of Christ is to not only have a right heart with God but also be in right relationship with people.
